Product Description

Featuring a duet of EL34s that provide 60 watts of glorious valve power through two high quality Celestion speakers, the HT Stage 60 combo delivers every night, even in the most testing live environment. The pristine clean tones have a 'boutique' style and functions flexibly between two modes - British Class-A and Dynamic US. Each of the two ISF equipped overdrive channels allows a further two modes.

Features

- 60 Watt valve combo
- 2xECC83, 1xECC82, 2xEL34
- Three footswitchable channels
- 2x12 inch Celestion speakers
- Enhanced tone controls with Patent-Applied for Infinite Shape Feature (ISF)
- Voice switching on Overdrive 1, Overdrive 2 and Clean channels
- Presence, Resonance and Master volume controls
- Digital reverb with dark/bright switch
- Speaker emulated output with 1x12/4x12 voicing
- Effects loop with effects level switch
- 4-way footswitch included

ISF (Infinite Shape Feature)

This fully interactive control allows you to infinitely adjust the response of the tone control network between any of the traditional voicings. In this way you can design your own sound and truly find the sound in your head. ISF works in conjunction with the Bass, Middle and Treble controls to give you access to infinite sound possibilities.

Getting the Tone You Want

- 1. Start with ISF set to half way
- 2. Adjust Bass, Middle and Treble to taste
- 3. Adjust ISF to find your sound (the lower the Mid the greater the effect)

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (13 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Combo Amp"
Overall: I was in the market for a two speaker combo amp, either tube or hybrid. I play metal but I am sick of hauling around half stacks. I've never played an arena in my life, so there is really no need for lugging that much stuff around. I saw that ZZounds had a refurbed model of the Blackstar HT-60. After some research and reading reviews, I figured it would be a good investment, especially with the hundred bucks off from being a refurb. I received the amp in INCREDIBLY good condition. I couldn't even believe that it had so much money taken off of it for a unit that was in such pristine condition. I noticed a small little ding on the very back of the amp, but that was it. The EQ is marvelously powerful. Even with the bass cranked all the way up, it never gets muddy or swamped out. The ISF knob is a very unique feature, and while its probably not as powerful as Blackstar would like you to think, it adds a unique dynamic to the EQ. Built in reverb is OK. The range in which it sounds "good" is very limited, but the option of having a Light / Dark reverb switch on the back is nice. The cleans sound absolutely breath taking, and the Voice switch for each channel really changes up the tone dramatically. Very nice feature to have. My only issue with OD2 is there is a lot of hiss / feedback, even at mild gain / volume levels. Overall, I will probably not need another combo amp as long as I'm a musician. This is a purchase that will (hopefully) last me a life time. Some have said they recommend changing out the tubes. I don't think its necessary, but that is just me. If anything, I would probably get a noise suppressor for the OD2 channel, and maybe an outboard reverb / delay / chorus to beef up the cleans, but THAT IS IT. The distortion on this unit is incredible, and there is a huge, huge dynamic range you can capture on this amp. I would highly recommend it for blues, rock, jazz, and metal musicians. Metal artists might get bugged by the hissy OD2 channel, but the Clean / OD1 channels will leave blues / rock / jazz musicians jaws on the floor. Really superb sounds come out of this amp. I would highly recommend it. Looking forward to more gigs with it! DID NOT USE MANUFACTURER SUPPORT. WOULD LOVE TO HAVE AN "N/A" OPTION FOR THAT RATING SYSTEM. NOT EXACTLY FAIR THAT I HAVE TO RATE IT.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "unless you want that $4000 boutique thing for bragging rights... YOU SHOULD BUY THIS AMP"
Sound: The sound is great, as a lot of people mentioned the Celestions that come with it aren't the best... I think replacing them with Vintage 30's will make this amp a 10 in the sound category though. Handles every guitar I plug into it with great results now though... but I love Vintage 30's. Then again, if it had Vintage 30's in it, it wouldn't be the price it is either. Feature: can get everything from crisp tele quacking cleans to humbucking shred tones with ease. every knob and switch actually DOES something on this amp. Ease of Use: Very easy to dial in gooey tube goodness... reminds me of a mix of Marshall and Boogie at 1/3 the price of the good ones. Took about five minutes to dial in each channel and get tones that made me want to write/record ideas. Didn't even read the manual, no need really. Plug in, set tone controls to 12 O'clock, turn up the master a bit, dial in some gain and start tweaking the tone controls. Beautiful results, can't wait to record with it. Quality: VERY sturdy. Definitely not a toy amp. Fit and finish are what I'd expect from Mesa. Heavy as hell, but still easier to transport than my Egnater Tourmaster and cab. Value: for this price?? hell yea, its a 10 in the value category. Manufacturer Support: I'll give this a 10, haven't had to deal with support and hope I never will. With a tube amp, if tubes go bad you replace them and bias it... The only other thing that might eventually go bad are pots and switches, but they all feel solid. Keep it away from dust and beer and I predict it'll be a long time before you need that support number. The Wow Factor: hard to define 'sex appeal' when you're talking about an amp... but its definitely got the vintage Marshall vibe going on. Love the look of it. Overall: Right now I've got four amps. A mid-60's Ampeg Geminii II (beautiful clean tones with a nice brown crunch when you crank it), mid-60's Fender Bandmaster (Fender tone, 'nuff said), Egnater Tourmaster 4100 (monster tone head) and now the Blackstar HT stage... If I can't get tone out of those four, I should just hang it up because I'd be deaf. If the Blackstar was stolen I'd replace it in a heartbeat... I expect to use this playing out quite a bit (maybe A/B with the Ampeg?). I did a lot of youtube research before I bought it, wanted to hear it from every player... mic'd and un-mic'd. Read and listened to every review I could find as well. No regrets on the purchase and I'd definitely recommend this amp for anyone who doesn't feel the need for the Marshall or Mesa stack to overpower the other guitarists/bassist on stage. This thing gets LOUD!
